    Default Avatar Battle Royale Discussion Thread XXIV: What is this "Haste" you speak of?

    Welcome to the 24th ABR Discussion Thread!
    Now go make comics!
    Because we used to burn through new ABR threads so quickly, we created the Discussion thread. All banter goes here, and all comics and non-canon kills go in the main thread. (see line below)

    Avatar Battle Royale: We All Live in A Yellow Citadel is the current thread. Post artwork there.
    Even though it seems to be holding together nicely;
    The ABR backup thread, is used in the event of Giantitp becoming untenable due to server issues or otherwise.
    The next link is quite good, although it could have used some more images.
    Trailer for the Fat Fish Fury plot by Kpenguin
    The next one should have had music, but didn't. :(
    Trailer for ABR by Omicroncubed

    Future Imperfect Trailer by Nameless

    The Amazing ABR Wiki
    It's free. It works. What else do you want?
    The world map of Avbaroy
    Mad Mask is a good cartographer. Of course, he didn't make up the majority of the countries.
    Backstory Comics
    Because people always want the focus to be on them.
    A Story of Death By Nameless (Currently inactive)
    A Tale of Two Fangs By Falgorn (dead)
    Endless By Omicroncubed (active!)
    Forest Fire By CrimsonAngel (dead)
    Remember By Lyinginbedmon (active!)
    The Blast Dragons By Jasondoomsblade (dead)
    Well that was unexpected By Randomizer (active!)
    Search By Calamity (dead)
    My Name is Q By Q (finished)
    The Fire Within By Firedrake and Chriky (dead)
    Dawn of Yesterday by Fayt (dead)
    The Skornbail Incident by Shades of Gray (dead)
    Planum Commedia by Mad Mask (active!)
    People find that web Active/dead means the status of the comic, not the person.comics are hard work.

    If Ins has a soul and can die, he's readable. Nameless' other powers have nothing to do with how much he can harm Ins. His immortality has more to do with him already being dead, rather then being Death.

    He can stop working and be destroyed but his "soul" is a nanomachine's thus he's not a living being (more of a construct) and cannot "die", he shouldn't even get to an afterlife when we finish him.

    To my knowledge being death never has given immortality (liches, zombies, vampires, they all can be defeated and send to the afterlifes they deserve)

    Isn't that's what kill means? (to make someone die) besides I didn't write die I wrote defeated and send to the afterlifes they deserve, so I don't get the point of your post.

    Whatever Onasuma's resurrection attempt put into Lying's corpse was something from the Sovice block that the spell identified as a "soul", some kind of energy signature related to the intellectual workings of it.

    But it is very unlikely to be a traditional Incarnum-based soul, because if it were then the Sovices would be much more familiar with things like magic. It's more likely an energy similar to it but with a much more universe-native origin.

    So Ins is technically soul-less, and an aberration of both Sovice and human physiology.

    I mean, they're immortal unless they're killed; they don't die on their own.

    To kill, is to cause something so much damage that the being is unable to remain animated.

    I always considered the word kill to be used when one takes the life away from another living being. *shrugs*

    Edit- Art thread discussion thread link updated.

    Also, could anyone post that chart thing showing the Alf members and their respective ranks etc, please?(And one for the UNA if that was ever made?) I feel I should update all my templates to FI before the thing actually starts..

    Scratch that, I found it in the first post. <.<

    Somewhat outdated though, isn't it?

    Is anyone interested in reviving L&L with me?


    EDIT: Also, I thought mods locked thread over the 50-page limit. I can understand letting the discussion threads go on until we got the new one approved but...

    The mods usually do, but they're pretty lackadaisical around here in general, and the ABR discussion has to go somewhere

    I meant, now that the new thread is up, why didn't they lock the old one.


    For that matter, why isn't the discussion thread from 2 threads ago locked?

    EDIT: After watching Nameless's trailer for FI, I was impressed, but I kept expecting it to switch to some kind of hard rock song and a montage of art...

    I'm wondering... Are there any programs that are a step up from Inkscape that don't cost as much as Adobe Illustrator?


    Because I'm annoyed with some of Inkscape's limitations and eccentricities, but I don't have anywhere near the money for Illustrator.


    EDIT: Also, Mad Mask, could you redraw your Squark Iota? I realize that at the time you didn't have a clear picture of him, but your depiction of him doesn't match my drawings at all.
